Ben Brust to play summer league with Milwaukee Bucks

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The former Wisconsin sharpshooter won't have to travel far to audition for a NBA job.

From the "we sure hoped this would happen" department: Ben Brust will play in a NBA summer league with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Brust went undrafted in Thursday's draft, so now his NBA career will begin July 11 at COX Pavilion in Las Vegas. That's where the Bucks will play their summer league games, and the opener comes vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers. That could be an interesting matchup of the draft's two top picks: the Cavs' Andrew Wiggins and the Bucks' Jabari Parker.

The Bucks have brought various former Badgers onto their recent summer league teams, including Mike Bruesewitz last year. We recently spoke with Bruesewitz about his overseas basketball career, as well as his the summer basketball camp he's starting up. In 2012, Brian Butch also suited up for Milwaukee's summer league team.

As a senior, Brust averaged 12.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game as the Badgers reached their first Final Four since 2000. He also set Wisconsin's single-season record for three-pointers made with 96. Over the course of his career, he set the school record for three-pointers made with 235.
